Safety leadership at Antero starts at the very top of the organization, by executives and senior management engaging in efforts that drive the safety culture of the company, which, in turn, ensure behaviors that assist all employees and contractors in achieving our Health, Safety, Security and Environmental (HSSE) goals.
Antero’s senior management is active in several committees such as the Corporate Sustainability Steering Committee (CSST) and the Field Safety Committee (FSC). The CSST consists of the Chief Administrative Officer/SVP of Appalachian Region, SVP of Production (Antero Resources), VP of Operations (Antero Midstream), VP of Operations (Antero Resources), VP of Health, Safety, Security and Environment along with other key senior staff. The CSST committee reviews many HSSE initiatives and provides feedback that drives the regular updating of our evolving safe work practices for employees and contractors.
The FSC is comprised of thirty key senior staff in the field reviewing and updating new programs and updating technology to ensure Antero is committed to achieving the best safety practices in the industry. This Antero committee meets once a quarter to review relevant items from Antero’s safe work practices, safety data systems and key leading and lagging indicators. The FSC will present new initiatives to the CSST for approval.
All corporate and field senior staff members, including the Chairman/CEO and President/CFO for Antero Resources and Antero Midstream, congregate weekly in an Antero operations meeting, which begins with key reviews of Antero HSSE incidents and incident rates.
